Started making a roof for my Cat.

Just started making a roof for my Cat, only have the rear done now but should have the front done tommrow. Thinking of tilting the front down to mimic the visors on some semi-trucks, think it may be an intresting look,
What do you think?

Pics are awfully small for us old farts but looks good.

The visor idea is cool but remember if you ride trees at all you are going to be snagging them. I've found leaves and twigs up under my flat mounted front.

Are you going to add any light to the roof?

my 2 piece AC roof has a slight over hang and it's not in the way for the tall folks like me.. if that helps any

also suggest a rolled bead in several places to stiffen it up as the wind may cause a big flat area to wamp wamp noise [sorry couldn't think of a better way to describe the up and down noise lol ] .. a good sheet metal fab shop will have a bead roller if you don't.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

wonder what gauge metal the roof is made of, Your rite if the gauge is to light it will have some wamp wamp to it ( if thats what you call it) You can x break it to and that will take some of the wamp wamp out.

Yea, does look good. post more pics of the progess on your top. I'm interested in what the finished top looks like. And make them a little bigger for us old folks.

Your roof is a lot like mine. The front visor can get ithe way of your vision so dont make it to low. I have no problems with the tinny rattling noise. There is a total of 11 dzus buttons holding the roof on with no bead rolls. Between the cage and Alum use the peel and stick foam and you will be noise free. If the pic doenst turn out look at my pics in the pics section. There is a lot of hours (welding, grinding, welding, grinding)in the front corners especially since I have rounded corners. And one more thing, on the front visor you should put a return edge on it to help keep it rigid.
